Stanley manages research on the USAID Enhancing Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (EnWASH) project in Ghana, with a primary focus on market-based sanitation and open-defecation-free sustainability. He develops research protocols, oversees data collection, conducts qualitative and quantitative data analysis, and collaborates with partner organizations. Stanley also supports implementing partners in translating research findings into practical solutions.

Stanley has experience in water and wastewater treatment as well as conducting water and sanitation research. His doctoral studies focused on understanding the governing mechanisms of fecal sludge dewatering for improved global sanitation. His work also evaluated the factors that influence solid-liquid separation of fecal sludge to develop high-throughput, low-footprint treatment technologies.

Stanley is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Environmental Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag) and ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
